Pomegranate Chia Seed Pudding with Silk Cashew Milk {vegan + gluten free}

This post is sponsored by Silk.

I have some super awesome news to share with you. Silk (the peeps who make almond milk, almond coconut milk and soy milk) have come out with a brand-spankin' new product for us: creamy cashew milk.

My first thought after my first sip was, “holy man this is really creamy!” If you're used to drinking almond milk you'll notice that cashew milk is so much richer tasting, which I love. But don't let the rich taste fool you, there are only 60 calories per serving which is 33% less than skim dairy milk. Pretty awesome, right? It also has as much calcium as dairy milk and is an excellent source of vitamin D. I'm sold.

I wanted to use the cashew milk in a recipe that would really highlight its creaminess and it turned out to be the ideal liquid for chia seed pudding.

Have you had chia seed pudding before? It's a lot like tapioca only chia seeds are a nutritional powerhouse and between them and the cashew milk you can feel really good about what you are eating. I like to think of this as dessert (yay for healthy desserts) but you could easily have this instead of oatmeal for breakfast.

It's also ridiculously easy to make. Just mix the cashew milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, and vanilla together with a pinch of sea salt and let it sit in your fridge overnight. So simple! You can even leave it in your fridge for a few days so you can have lots of yummy snacks with zeeeero work. This is my kinda recipe.

So what do you do with cashew milk aside from making pomegranate chia seed pudding?

Here are a few ideas:

  • Drink it! Perhaps that's a little too obvious but it is good on its own too.
  • Use it in your coffee or tea.
  • Make creamy mashed potatoes.
  • Use it instead of dairy milk in your holiday baking.
  • Pour it over your cereal in the morning.
  • Pour some into your smoothie.
  • Make a dairy-free ice cream.
  • Use it to make a creamy soup.
  • Make a dairy-free caramel sauce.
  • Make a rich and creamy hot chocolate.
